We all had a wonderful time. We caught at least 60 fish King mackerel, Spanish mackerel, Goliath groupers, Jacks, Bonita, blue runners I don’t think there was a minute to rest it was non stop. Captain Ted was top notch and was fun to be around. I’ve been fishing my whole life and was without question the best fishing I’ve ever experienced.

Awesome experience with my 6 and 7 year old boys. Both caught about 15-20 fish each including triggerfish, snappers, Blue runners, Spanish mackerel, etc. Capt. Ted was great with my boys teaching them how to handle the rod, bait hooks, and of corse catch fish. The boat was great for our group of three and the equipment was top notch. Also the wildlife was great, we saw dolphin, sea turtles, etc. All and all an awesome experience and definitely recommended.

I’ve been fishing with my 3 boys for years and Captain Ted was incredible!  He was very patient and actually taught the boys to fish.  Great boat, best Captain,  and the highlight was this Goliath Grouper that my son was able to hop in the water to get his picture taken with his catch.  A+
